What Does Unconstitutional Really Mean?

October 20, 2012

I was reading yesterday where the 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals, which is located in Manhattan, NY, became the second court to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  The three judge appeals court agreed with a lower court’s ruling that DOMA is unconstitutional because it violates equal protection.  The case is most likely headed to the U.S. Supreme Court for a final decision.

As I thought about the ruling of the 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals, it started me to wonder exactly what ‘unconstitutional’ really means these days.

When DOMA was passed and signed into law in 1996, the law was upheld in all court challenges which were few at the time.  So what has changed to suddenly make it unconstitutional?

Would you believe me if I told you that it has nothing to do with the U.S. Constitution and everything to do with the growing acceptance of liberal and immoral lifestyles?

And now… the rest of the story. …..
